RPG Research is a charity that uses roleplaying games to make life better for people.
Last month, Geek Native shared a call for assistance from the charity which was struggling to cope with a 1,000% boom in demand.
This week, the early figures suggest RPG Research helped more than 30,000 people.
With fewer than 150 volunteer and less than $10,000 in funding, we helped improve the lives of tens of thousands of people across 6 continents! It looks like we may have raised up to $18,000 USD in 2020, but the difference did not arrive until the end of the year after all of our programs in 2020 were complete. This means all the programs that were measurably providing a direct impact on people, were provided with less than $10,000 USD!
It’s money well spent. RPG Research notes that they have a proven reduction of juvenile crime rates in neighbourhoods where they can run their programs.
Along with training GMs, the group provides free roleplaying games, including LARP and online, RPG tours, online events, workshops and provide staff for events in community centres, libraries and schools.
